You are most likely hearing the compressor overload device tripping and resetting as the compressor is probably not starting. remove the rear lower panel of the unit and verify your possible buzz/click is coming from the compressor. If this is the case you can replace the starting and overload device to see if this fixes the issue, if not your compressor may be in need of replacement. Pleazer Appliance...

SOURCE: Freezer is cold but refrigerator is not.

If the fan is still working (and it sounds like it is, then the evap coils are frozen up. A typical failure is the defrost bi-metal t-stat but I've also seen LOTS of the adaptive defrost circuit boards fail on this model. I would lean toward the circuit board first as the culprit. See part 711 http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/32266.gif http://www.partselect.com/xq/aspx/Inventory.51814/qx/PartDetail.htm?SourceCode=5&ModelNum=ARSE66MB

SOURCE: Amana refrigerator only not working

Few questions first. 1.  What is the entire model # on the sticker inside the fridge section?  2.  Is the fan in the freezer running?  3.  Is there a thick frost build up on the back panel in the freezer (look at the bottom half for a side by side)?

Sounds like a defrost problem or a plugged drain... to get it to work temporary defrost the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator, open the door and get a blow dryer and warm up the freezer. wait until the water stop dripping out or about 12 to 24 hours and then you can plug it back in . it will work for 2 to 3 weeks. To unplug the drain.defrost the freezer .remove the back cover. Use a pipe cleaner to clear the drain. pour a few cups of hot water down the drain. The defrost systems is:
HEATER-DEFROST
THERMOSTAT-DEFROST
TIMER-DEFROST
Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.

Sounds like the overload/relay is going out . If the noise is a " click " , replace the o/relay after checking the 3 terminals on compressor for continuity and each terminal to ground ( copper tubing ) .

Testimonial: "thanks Mike. it worked at that time, a year later we had more problems and had a new compressor put in and today something else is wrong with it. It is on and sounds normal but is not cooling at all, then when it shuts off there is this screeching noise that comes from it for about half a minute or so."

Window airconditioner cycling on and off too much but blows cold when running


Eliminate the possibility that the cold air from the unit is not blowing directly on the thermostat temperature sensor.
The air conditioner may be extra large in capacity for the space being used for.

Kenmore refridgerator not blowing cold air.


You need to replace the overload/relay . This is the piece plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . It is easily replaceable . Take your model number with you when you get the part kit , so you get the correct replacement . DO NOT use a 3 in 1 hard start . This item is used by inexperienced technicians , and will only last a short time . Get what is called for , for your refrig .

Freezer and frige not that cold


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Freezer doesn't get cold enough yet fridge section o.k.


pressure on your system is low may needs service or clean the condenser located on the back of the fridge that may help if not add some more gas to compensate the pressure
